AEM Intake; worth it ?
Does anyone know how much Horsepower the Intake adds? What else does it do? So far I only know that it makes it growl.


Celicas are sexy. Me in a Celica is DAMN sexy.

Not 100% positive on this one so i'm sure someone will correct if im wrong, but The AEM improves power at the top end of the RPM band where as the Injen improves low end power. The Intake is definately worth it, with a k&n filter you can just clean and re-use. Power is definately noticable, if you do the cold air, i'd recommend the air bypass valve just incase the filter takes on some heavy rain, or water.

nope. AEM helps with the lower RPM while Injen is higher.

Worth it for the sound alone. U have a GTS right. My Injen sounds amazing going into lift. Some idiots sometimes comment on my exhaust that's how good it is. Couple added horsepower doesn't hurt either.
